Project Description

Heather Brown has been called the "Godmother of Modern Surf Art".  Learn about Heather Brown and see samples of her work.  After, students are invited to celebrate the ocean by creating their own surf art.  There are steps they can follow to create scenes inspired by Heather Brown: The Big Wave, The Surfer on the Shore, and The Sunset (for 2-12).   If they prefer, they can design their own beach or surf artwork instead.  

Note: K-1 - if they would like to create the Sunset scene, they can follow the separate video in the extensions area.  The main video for K-1 only has the Big Wave and Surfer on Shore.
